Jordan is a fluent Welsh speaker and is equally comfortable giving advice through the medium of Welsh.
Away from work Jordan is a keen sportsman and particularly enjoys football. He is a season ticket holder for his beloved Swansea City and actually played for the club’s academy for many years as a schoolboy. His other sporting interests include long distance running and he recently completed the Cardiff half marathon. He is currently training to take part in a full marathon later in the year.
Aside from sport he enjoys nothing more than spending quality time with family and socialising with friends.
